Reciprocity

A sense of Contemporary Tradition steeped in History

At Helsingfors Segelsällskap we feel strongly for sharing the passion for sailing.

It has long been our pleasure to welcome members of other like minded clubs into our house, and our privilege to enjoy their hospitality in turn. HSS Board is seeking to establish a network of formal reciprocal arrangements with the most agreeable and dynamic yacht clubs throughout the Baltic sea region, the British Isles, Australia and the U.S.  

We are open to suggestions from “matching couples” of yacht clubs with a focus on youth sailing & training, high class competitive sailing, referee exchange, classic fleets, ocean & archipelago cruising and Corinthian sailing.

HSS is one the most distinguished clubs of its kind in Finland. It was founded well over 100 years ago, in 1893 and have about 1400  members. Our members represent a wide scale of the population of the Helsinki sailing society with a distinguished fleet of sailing boats from various dinghies to beautiful classic 6 and 8mR’s and modern long-distance cruisers.

HSS is located in the heart of Helsinki, on a short walking distance to the City Center.  Helsinki airport is reached by taxi within 30-40 minutes with flights all over the world on a daily basis.

Today  HSS Yacht Club is

-          Finland’s leading junior yacht club with over 150 sailing juniors.

-          HSS hosts Finland’s most extensive sailing center for adults - AUDI HSS Sail Center – intended for adults of various ages.

-          One of the largest fleets of classic yachts in the Nordics with 80 classic boats in the harbor.

-          HSS home harbor is located at the Liuskasaari island, in front of the Merisatama in Helsinki, the capital of Finland.

-          For sailor guests there is a guest harbor with full service for twenty boats.
